Myths & Legends

Invest in a legend of British folklore. For an investment into the future, The Royal Mint is looking to Britain’s legendary past with our new bullion coin collection, inspired by classic stories of myth and legend. The first hero of folklore to be celebrated in the collection is Robin Hood. Tales of the rebellious character and elusive archer, who stole from the rich to give to the poor, began centuries ago and are still told today. Although these stories were based in legend, Robin Hood’s quest to care for those most vulnerable in society means that legend has carried him from his first appearances in the fourteenth century through to the modern day.
